Arcadia Management Area is a wonderful place to explore. Difficulty of the Breakheart Loop trail ranges from easy to moderate. Though the area is open to bikers, hikers and in some sections horseback riding, I was able to meander for an hour or so at a time without seeing another individual. The yellow blazed section of the Breakheart Loop is fairly well marked and easy to follow, however, not all trails within the Management Area are marked so take care at trail intersections to be sure you remain on the right trail. Brooks and streams were quite dry during my visit (but then it has been a dry summer), but wildlife was plentiful. Arcadia is great place to spend a few hours exploring the many trails, or just enjoying the scenery around one of the ponds.
